Asif Bhatti – Broad Peak Updates

Asif Bhatti attempted to climb Broad Peak this summer.

Could he gain his first 8000er?

It was attempted without added Oxygen or High Altitude Porters

We followed his journey here;

3rd August

Asif has closed Broad Peak expedition and left for Ali Camp in the morning. He met Sajid Sadpara on the way.

Asif reached up to 7500m during summit push, however, difficult snow conditions and avalanche at V made it very dangerous to progress ahead so all climbers decided to come down.
